Still at your service.

Don't be fooled by the name. OK, be a little fooled. The 29-inch Maxxis Minion DHR II Tire does take some basic design features from the first-generation Minion, but this is largely an all-new tire.

The original Minion DHR made a name for itself on muddy, technical DH courses around the world by simply refusing to quit, and the same can be said of the DHR II. Shoulder knobs are now borrowed from the heavy-duty Minion DHF tire, making for a wider stance than the original DHR and better cornering, and the once-separated central knobs are now practically unified, creating a paddle-like effect across the tire that notably boosts both braking and loose-ground traction. Still siped, and now ramped, the tread rolls and clears mud and grime faster than its predecessor. The 60TPI casing returns, as does EXO sidewall protection technology, which is the integration of a tough, semi-rigid fabric into the tire's sidewall that prevents both abrasion and pinch-flatting.

The 29-inch Maxxis Minion DHR II Tire comes in a 2.3-inch width only, and in the color Black.

    Come late summer the trails tend to be in rough shape! Braking bumps, loomy dust. This tire conquerors that effortlessly. While there is a slight weight penalty, a great tread pattern and stiff sidewalls make that easy to forget.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Used minions for a long time... never had any problems, took my Enduro to Downieville, CA and it handled it very well. Im set up for tubeless... it's been great so far, handled the rockgardens really well, no loss in grip, bike stayed grounded throughout the ride.

    Bombproof All Mountain Tire

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Maxxis Minion DHR II's came stock on my BC Edition Rocky Mountain Instinct, and when the time comes to change them it will be really tough to come up with a single reason to try something else.

    I've thown every kind of "all mountain" trail at these tires short of the Whistler bike park - North Shore, Squamish, Whistler, Sedona, Moab and every kind of weather from near freezing muddy rain forest suffer-fests to 100 degree dry desert oven days. Wet roots - check. Sharp rocks - Check. Cactus - check. Steep everything - check. Flats? Nope. Performance? Yup.

    These tires are bombproof - they definately out perform this rider. They climb better than their reputation (actually reasonably fast, with good grip) - more than good enough for my ability, and they decend, brake and generally save my butt consistently every time I over ride my abilities.

    I've run with tubes and tubless, no noticible difference (although freedom to run lower PSI without pinch flats is almost worth the goop and top ups). Life is 6+ months, or 50+ riding days on tough terrain.

    Tubeless is where it's at!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I bought these for my boyfriend to make his bike tubeless so he could keep up with me and stop changing flats! He went from worn tread to bouncing off the side of everything. According to him, they are "sticky, made for the downhill with durable sidewalls." His tubeless set-up is WAY better- I highly recommend it, along with the other things you will need to set it up.
